Don't be fooled by the knock off buoys out on the market today. This buoy was developed by the International Swimming Hall of Fame in 2010 and is proud of making swimmers safe all over the world.
Please note this float does not come with dry storage. There is a handle on the bottom side that keeps the buoy straight in the water and can also be used to carry your float.
The SaferSwimmer™ float is specifically designed to provide a safety aide for open water swimmers, serving three important functions without hindering performance or hindering your stroke. When considering personal safety and peace of mind for you and those who care about you consider the following advantages of this device:
1) It makes you visible to boaters, jet skiis, kite boarders or other potential human hazards while you are swimming.2) It can be used as a floatation device when you need it in the case of cramps, dizziness or injury and it can also be used to rescue others;
3) It can also keep your “stuff” safe while your swimming or allows you to take along your “stuff” on one-way swims across rivers or lakes.
*A final point to consider. Unlike running, when a swimmer suffers a stroke, heart attack or unconsciousness you sink and disappear below the water. As a recent incident at Christmas Lake in Minnesota demonstrated, when observers saw the ISHOF SaferSwimmer Float not moving, it alerted them in time to revive and save the life a swimmer who otherwise could have been added to the not insignificant number of open water swimmers who have drowned in recent years. Most notably, the great American open water swimmer, Fran Crippen.
